The National Records and Archives Authority shall develop a broad and comprehensive collection by acquiring records of national significance in a planned and integrated manner that will enhance and promote our historical and cultural heritage and promote good governance and accountability by the establishment and maintenance of effective and economical management systems of records of government.

In its commitment to the preservation of government’s recorded memory, the National Archives acquires records:

• which document the impact of government decision-making upon citizens and groups in St. Christopher and Nevis and the interaction between the public and the state;
• that are considered essential to protect the collective and individual rights and privileges of citizens and their social, cultural and physical environment;
• of national significance containing significant or unique information that will substantially enrich understanding about the Federation’s history, society, culture and people; and
• that the Government of St. Christopher and Nevis is required to maintain for a substantial period of time by law.
